How to Throw a Cutter | Baseball Pitching


How to throw a cutter. The cutter or cut fast ball is a combination
of a four seam fast ball and a slider. The major difference here is that when throwing
a cutter, you do not turn the forearm or wrist, but rather you hold
it as a fast ball, except that the ball is rotated on more of a diagonal
angle in the hand. Mariano Rivera
has had a Hall of Fame career by throwing the cut fast ball. The cut fast ball thrown from a right-handed
pitcher’s hand will run away from a right-handed batter, and into a left-handed
batter. Conversely, a
left-handed pitcher that throws a cut fast ball will watch the ball cut
into a right-handed batter and tail away from a
left-handed batter. The cut
fast ball is an effective pitch thrown in conjunction with a two seam
fast ball, which typically runs into a batter. This will stymie the batter when a cut fast
ball is used in conjunction with the two seam fast ball.
